Description: Homemade pizza cooked in a wood burning oven and obtained from selected ingredients out of certified organic farming but also "magrebini" (sandwiches with home-made bread cooked in wood oven according to Arabian tradition) and fresh salads. All the oven products are available with traditional dough made with organic wheat flour or with stone ground whole wheat flour and are prepared with natural yeast for slow and natural rising which gives the pizza aromatic richness and high nutritional value. Takeaway only available until 7 PM. In case of great affluence takeaway service might be suspended.

Cardomomo can be found close to Como Nord Borghi railway station and is a little away from the tourist areas of Como. The food is first class and the service excellent. We had two meals there within a week as we used Como as a base and all four pizzas were top notch. My wife had one of the "special" pizzas twice and I had two different "standard" pizzas. We really enjoyed every one of them. The owner took the trouble to explain the different ingredients and made us thoroughly welcome. They take pride how they source their ingredients - and it shows. Take a look at their website for more information. I was particularly pleased with their choice of artisan beers and after the meal in the great liqueurs on offer. Arrive early at weekends or you might have to queue with those in the know. If you do have to queue its well worth the wait. Two great meals out for us.

If you wish to have pizza while you are in Como, this restaurant is a very good choise.
May be it is not the best pizza you will ever have but it is one of the best.
The quality is very good and the size is amazing. Very extented varity of pizzas that makes you a bit dizzy if you are not Italian. Ask the personel for an advice.
They also have a very cozy back yard that is ideal when inside is crowded.
Try at least on of the beers they serve, I really enjoyed it.
If it is a rush hour it may take a bit long till you eat but I beleive it worths the wait.

The atmosphere is nice with a new morocco style. Is immediately possible feel staff's courtesy. Pizza's quality is good and I suggest to try the artigianal dessert, it's also interesting read the story and passion of the owners. It's not so big, for many people is better book before. The quality price is good. High reccomended.
